I'll try and be as short as possible, we have been caring for her for almost 7 years. It is to a point now that is becoming too overwhelming, almost unbearable.
Mom has some money (Medicaid is out), fantastic medical coverage, but they keep telling us caregivers aren't necessary. Even after Dr wrote prior authorization.
She has no other ailments, but insurance will cover nurse twice a week, physical therapist and occupational therapist...she doesn’t need that.
Need help bathing, simple house upkeep, meals... even just someone to babysit her so we can have a break!
The whole house is an open toilet, the bed is soiled multiple times a day...this is what we need help with... any ideas? Has anyone else had such problems?
She cant find bedroom, bathroom etc. needs 24/7 care, but wants to stay at home. We are trying to see that this happens...
any advice appreciated...
